Berlin Experiences
Founder & Guide

Few cities captivate the interest and imagination of visitors as much as Berlin, fewer still hold such an important place in modern history. As a travel destination, this city never disappoints.

Professional curiosity brought me to Berlin. As a trained journalist, I arrived over a decade ago intent on exploring and better understanding this unique city that, like no other, stood centre-stage throughout the tumultuous 20th century.

Working as a journalist, guide and historian in Berlin has provided me ample chance to experience the German capital for what it truly is. Weighed with the significance of its history and the dynamism of its present, Berlin is more than the simple sum of its landmarks.

I would like to share my years of accumulated insights, city secrets & insider knowledge with you.


Taking a private guided tour in Berlin is the ideal way to find you feet in the city or delve deeper into familiar territory. We work with many expert local guides, all professionally certified by the Bündnis Berliner Stadtführer guides association, to offer premium quality private tours focused on specific historical chapters in Berlin’s past, and aspects of the city’s vibrant present day. If you’re looking for in-depth sightseeing and a relaxed but detailed introduction to the city, we can provide it. We also tailor travel itineraries for niche interests in the city, company and school excursions and educational family visits.

Below you’ll find a selection of private tours to get you inspired:

“I’ve hired Matt as a tour guide for many years and could not recommend him more wholeheartedly. His knowledge is overwhelming, his passion infectious, his tours whilst informative and educational, never fail to also entertain and amuse. Adding this to his…impeccable presence makes him one of the best tour guides in the capital of Germany!”


“The knowledge of our guide Matthew was beyond what your usual tour guide could offer. Not only was he able to provide extensive knowledge of the city and its different layers of history but his synthesis of different points of view gave us a different outlook of Berlin…we were let in on a secret a few people have a chance to know about or even experience.”


“We had a really nice private tour in Berlin with Matt our tour guide. It was really impressive how well he knew the city and how passionate he was about its history. I was deeply captivated by the secrets side of his stories… I am really thankful for his advises on restaurants and bars. We both had a great time in Berlin. We will come back soon!”


I was lucky to tour with Matt. Usually when I travel, I do a ton of research in advance and plan my own tour but I didn’t have time before this trip. It could not have worked out better…When I got home, I read more about Berlin’s history and the built environment and all of Matt’s facts checked out… You will not be disappointed with Berlin Experiences.
